Has anyone made one of the shirts? How does it fit? Based upon the garment measurements its a looser fit. I prefer a snugger fit so maybe I will make a size smaller.

I'm so glad you opted for the drawstring! I'm about to do the same thing, and I'm glad it turned out. I bought some raw silk while I was in Singapore, it's all pinned, waiting to be sewn!

I have some silk jacquard that's been in my stash long enough to have whiskers that I think is destined to be the tunic length top! Just need to get out the ol 'round tuit'! I've gotten lots of compliments on this outfit when I wear it, including the coveted 'You made that??' :p Alas, it's put up for the season now...

I just bought this pattern, with the intent to make the top, I never thought about making the pants. Now you've inspired me! I like your whole outfit, definately looks comfortable, drapey and chic. If you get around to making one of the tops, I'd love to know how that came out!

Wow - does that outfit ever look cool and comfy...and slimming! I keep on saying it - wide leg pants, especially in drapey fabrics, are a very slimming look - much more so than the usual somewhat tapered style.

Great review, Lisa, I too never considered horizontal stripes for pants but yours look really good!

Neat pants and top. Thanks for sharing your experience with the fabric. Haven't sewn on Tencel yet.

thanks, ladies! Pam, I felt 'empowered ' to use the horizontal stripes when I saw Nancy Erickson's May newsletter; she had a photo of knit pants with horizontal stripes that really didn't look too bad. I think the stripes work on this because 1) the fabric is so drapey 2) the stripes are very narrow and 3) the crinkles add a hint of vertical lines. I did think about it as I was cutting it out, though, and hoped the stripes wouldn't make me look 'as broad as a barn' ;)

I really like your pants, they look so nice on you. And your stripes match up so perfectly!

What great pants! Love that fabric. This pattern does have some nice designs, and obviously has even more versatility when in your hands.

Cool outfit, Lisa! Your pattern changes are great. Who would think horizontal stripes could be so slimming :)
